I’ve asked Thorsten Moritz (vita below) to consider the following topics of conversation at HUMANA 2.08. These are based
on conversations with Thorsten over the last couple of years.
# Why single leadership in a church is unbiblical (based on Thorsten’s challenge that there are no single leaders in the scriptures) (and maybe even unhealthy).
# Single and Plural Leadership from a biblical perspective
# Why what we call church is not church (based on our conversation last Feb about the mistake of calling our Sunday morning gatherings a church)
# What is a church and what is her mission?
# Why mega churches fail the definition of what it means to be a church
